Journey to Portugal – Lisbon oceanarium
Journey to Portugal was excellent and Editors o-travels.com, could not help but share with you my impressions. From Helsinki to Lisbon airport – only four hours fly. Pair your favorite movies, quite a decent dinner with Portuguese wine – and here you are at home Vasco Da Gama. Before you go out of the capital in Sagres to the ocean, we spent an evening and a day walk through the Park of Nations.
Lisbon Oceanarium – the former Pavilion of the oceans Lisbon World Fair Expo 1998 – a self-respecting traveler ignore does not. The building and its surroundings are full of light and spaciousness.
During our visit to the numerous school groups filled the territory of their chirping and bustle. Portuguese children are very different in temperament from, for example, their northern peers incredible mobility, sociability and emotionality. Teachers should not pull up, do not make comments to the behavior calmly, even when the children periodically, literally, go to each other on the head. The pavilion with the penguins, another group of enthusiastic children have almost squeezed out of the fence.
Apparently, for teachers in their behavior there is nothing outrageous. Portuguese Happy childhood. On the comfortable stay of children and adults here especially taken care of. A long series of tents with comfortable armchairs allowing you to relax in the shade, to exchange experiences and simply to gather all in a heap after the tour. To somehow distinguish by groups of children, they wear caps and T-shirts of certain colors.
One of the biggest in the world, the aquarium is really impressive in its scope and variety. Especially good central aquarium, which is 7 meters depth and the water temperature is equally comfortable for both tropical fish, as well as for representatives of the temperate latitudes. Without exaggeration, you feel in the water in the open ocean.
The most incredible underwater creatures for me and left a strange creature – sun-fish, it is also a fish-moon, she’s a fish-head. It seems that the rest of the body it someone took a bite, and the next-generation inherited the consequences of this accident.
Yet, this fish is not devoid of charm and grace. She walked slowly and with dignity slides in depth, not paying any attention to their ordinary neighbors. Respect!
